rich people suck, study says

saw a story on ctv news yesterday. according to studies, rich people spend less on charity than non rich people. rich people give less consideration for others, are less compassionate, are more ruthless, and are basically just a bunch of assholes. it was on tv, so i haven't been able to find the link. but i believe it

Re: rich people suck, study says

I think I would stay away from them, based on this story.

Don't work for them...don't talk to them...don't ask anything of them....

Maybe they'll just die or move somewhere else.


If I meet an a$$hole...am I to assume that they are rich...or does it not work that way?

Maybe the poor should be donating their time working at kindness kitchens for the rich. If all they have to give is lessons in kindness they should be giving of their wisdom. Poor should be donating "How to be great" lessons.

Sorry Nicole but it's really that a lot of people just suck. And when they have means and don't need others it's easier for them to be themselves

Rich people don't suck. We need to feel sorry for them. They are under more stress than us poor folk.

I do not suck, I am awesomeness personified.

No, scratch that - my awesomeness can not be contained within the confines of merely being human; it can not even be defined by energy nor matter as currently understood by the homosapien brain. Nay! We span the cosmos!

Stereotypes are so....1963.

And here I thought political correctness was supposed to change all of that.

I've met more poor a$$holes than rich ones. This "study" is weak.

I do hope this "study" makes underachievers even more complacent. Less competition!!

There is no middle class anymore. You are either rich or poor.
I know a few "Well off" people who are very giving. There will be a-holes in all walks
of life. The only difference is that poor people hope God exists and answers their prayers. Rich people KNOW for a fact, without question that he exists.

At least we can blame it on the money when we meet a rich asshole.

What excuse do you assholes have that do nothing but bitch about them?

Some folks from all classes suck, the rich ones are just easier to detest and to a far greater degree

Peple are a$$holes. Money is like liquor... you have some and your true colors start to show, but the A$$hole Within was already there.
